Upton Great Barrow

Round Barrow(s)


Upton Great Barrow belies its name in the sense that you'd not know it was there without a map. Like many of the barrows in this area, it is hidden in trees - in this case hidden all around, and fenced off to boot, but at least very near a trackway.

A Bronze Age bell barrow, 175' wide, and formerly with a bank around the ditch.

Alas some philistine has put some kind of ugly water container on the top.
